On one side of the Great Rift Valley Kericho is to be found. Kericho is a city in the Rift Valley Province and the capital of the Kericho District. It's the center of the most important tea plantation area of Kenya. Kericho and surroundings are most famous because of its tea plantations. The deep green tea leafes charaterize the area and makes it more shining green then anywhere else.
